Peterhead Port Authority is supporting Absafe, a charity aimed at promoting a safety culture in communities through educating schoolchildren in a fun way.
Last month it was the turn of Peterhead’s Central School to visit Absafe and participate in a series of “educational interactive sets” which tackled subjects such as fire safety, road safety, water safety, alcohol awareness and internet bullying.
This allows the children to make more informed decisions on keeping themselves and others safe. Absafe is dedicated to saving lives and reducing harm by instilling a positive safety culture in communities.
Simon Brebner, CEO of Peterhead Port Authority, said: “We are humbled to be a partner with Absafe. The benefits the charity provides through educational workshops are invaluable and it was simply amazing to see how engaged all the school children were during the activity sets.
“Our aim is to ensure that all schools represented within the Peterhead locality are able to participate in this programme and we will be working with Absafe to ensure we can deliver.”
Absafe CEO Louise Richardson said: “When we look at the work we do at Absafe, it is important for us to have local support, as it ensures we are able to continue to deliver the interactive learning for children in the north-east of Scotland, and it shows the local children and young people that Peterhead Port Authority is committed to their health, safety and wellbeing.
“Absafe exists to ensure that local children can lead a life free from unintentional injury. We are Aberdeen’s only charity dedicated to saving lives and reducing harm by instilling a positive culture in our communities and inspiring a passion for safety. We cannot deliver this without support from organisations such as Peterhead Port Authority.”
